BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

BACCHUS MARSH. Mr. Alfred Slack has just pur chased 64 acres of the Broadlands estate, from Messrs. Miller Bros. The area comprises 45 acres just opposite the old Woolpack Inn (previously occupied by Mr. Arthur Hine, as one of the share farmers on the estate) and 19 acres on the opposite side of the road, known as the old racecourse paddock. The price per acre has not been divulged, but as other parts of the estate in the vicin ity have been sold up to £80 per acre, it can be assumed that this sale is something about the same figure-or a £4,000 transaction, at anyrate. Mr. Slack is to be con gratulated on his venture, as he is one of those most industrious men who has worked his way up from the bottom. He started in a small way as a dairy farmer, and by keep ing a good herd, well cared for and fed liberally, hie got wonderful milk returns from them. Mr. Slack then looked for more -scope for his en ergy, and leased the dairy farm (Mr. Geo. Sloss's) hlie now occupies. That hlie has fo...

PURE-BRED BULL BEST FOR HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

PURE-BRED BULL BEST FOR HERD. If you are a dairy farmer you be long to one of three classes: "One who raises a pure-bred herd, a grade herd, or a scrub herd. If you also have a scrub bull, the chances are that the heifers from your cows will not be as profitable as their dams, thus resulting in a loss. There is only one remedy: A pure-bred dairy bull. If he costs as much as three cows, you think you cannot afford it. The production is decreasing. If your cows must be bought the costs are higher eacl year. Why not produce from your scrubs animals that will command in some cases twice the price'of their scrub dams. To prove this, one need only go to some farmer and try to buy his grade heifers that are of only one pure-bred cross. If a few grades are tested it will be seen they beat the scrubs at the pail. This will convince you that the best method is to buy a pure-bred bull, and im prove the grade. Your grades are doing well, for I notice new buildings and silos on your farm. In fac...

IN MEMORIAM. Of The Fallen Australian Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

IN MEMORIAM. Of The Fallen Australian Soldiers. Brave lads, the record of your deeds Shall through the ages stand Undimmed, clear written, all un= touched By Time's effacing hand. And were it mine to wake the lyre, By master touch to song, How noble were the ventured strain, How eloquent and strong. The lay, as worthy as its theme, In joy and pride should tell, How o'er their brows on Garba's heights, What light of glory fell! Yet 'ere the echo of its notes Had ceased all hearts to thrill, My own would prompt the thought and words "Their meed is greater still." They fought that Freedom still might live, For Right, their lives laid down, Each life a jewel, pure as light, In Auistralia's crown. .Peace to their ashes, on their graves, Each new Australia Day, With memories fadeless as her sun, Flowers of Remembrance lay. We moan"not-by their silent tombs, Nor breathe one fruitless sigh, But whisper there, with . tender pride, A loving, last good-bye. J. S. PARKE. Donnybrook, .(W.A.), Se...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

, SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Corporal W. R. Mor ton, of Pentland Hills: 19.7.15.-All the Marsh boys are well. We are having a few days off, in a place where there is plenty of fruit and luxuries. You may bet your life that we made the most of the opportunity. Yesterday ,we walked to a village about 7 miles away. We had a "bonza" time, but, oh, how tired we were when we got back again. The fruit we ate was rather over the fence-mulber ries, pears, apples and oranges, a great assortment. It is very dusty here, but not nearly so hot as it is in the trenches. 31/7/15.-We are back at the trenches again. Charlie Crook has joined -us again. The days are warm, but the nights are rather cool. Bill McKenzie has had a touch of the sun, not bad, but he was sent to the Base. 11/8/15.-We got a big mail yes terday, I got 10 letters and three papers. There are some horrible lies printed in the papers about the landing and fighting at Gallipoli. I don't think those who wrote them were ever near t...

The Peer and the Woman. Published by arrangement with Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd. [All Rights Reserved.] CHAPTER XIV.—Continued [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

BY E. PHILLIPS OPPENHEIM. Published by arrangemeat with Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd. [All Rights Reserved.] CHAPTER XIV.-Continued Lord Alceston admired his mother. With what other teelings he regarded her he scarcely himselt knew. 'T'heir relations had uniformly been the re lations of a society mother to a so. ciety son. They had been on friendly terms always, but there had never been occasion for difference. At that moment, as they stood face to tace in the dusky twilight, he had almost forgotten that she- was his mother. The one thought in his mind:, was that this woman had some dim, secre: knowledge-perhaps not knowledge, but at any rate suspicion-which she was refusing to share with him. It never occurred to him to suspect her of complicity in his father's murder, of actual knowledge of the guilty per. sons; but still she appeared to know -:mething which might afford him a caue. What were her reasons for with holding it he could not imagine. But he feld that if she did...

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 54. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915

BACCHUS MARSH. By W. WILLIAMs, B.A. No. 54. On 9th Oct., 1870, a child roamed away at Coimadai, and although the whole country around was searched day and night, no trace of the lost one could be found. It was as if the child had been abducted. That was in 1870. I read, Nov. 16, 1872, that a portion of the skeleton of a child had been found at Coimadai. The readers of the "Express" were reminded that some three years be fore the three-year-old daughter of Mr. Parrington, then residing in the district, had strayed from the house of a neighbour, while the mother was there on a visit. The prolonged and difficult search had fruitless ending, though it was continued for days and days after the child's dis appearance. The remains were ac cidentally discovered on the side of some rising ground, about a mile to the northward of where the child strayed from. A pair of. boots and a hood had been certified to by the parents as those worn by the child at the time of its disappearance. I scan al...
